GP Lille 2015 Submitting your decklist 1 Jul 2015 News by: Kevin

Friday Trials


Decklists are mandatory for all Friday Trials.


Your decklist must:

- Be in A4 or US Legal format

- Have your LAST NAME, First Name and DCI# indicated on its top


If we'll obviously have decklists available for you on Friday morning and will setup an area dedicated to write decklists, we recommend that you come with your decklist to be able to playas fast as possible.

Indeed, you will not be allowed to enter in the registration queue if you do not have a decklist ready.



We know writing decklists is not fun, therefore we will make sure you can use only one all day long on Friday.  To make it manageable for us, we'll simply ask you to write on your the decklist for your second or more trial your LAST NAME, First name and DCI number, as well as the number of the trial you've first played in. Remembering this number is all you'll need to do :)



Regular Registrations


Your decklists will be collected by judges during the Seat All Players on Saturday morning at 09:00

We remind you that attending the Seat All Players is mandatory unless you registered for Sleep-in Special or the VIP Experience


If you are a minor, keep in mind you need to have your parents or legal guardian sign the Media consent Form, available here




Sleep-in Special and VIP Experience Registrations


You need to submit your decklist before Saturday morning 9:00.
To do so, you can:

  • Bring your decklist to the Welcome Desk on Friday
  • Bring your decklist to the Welcome Desk on Saturday before 09:00
    Or have a friend submit it for you
  • Send it by email to
    We will not be able to acknowledge reception. In case of an issue, we will ask you to provide a proof you sent the email.

If you send it by email, here are some requirements after some issues we ran into in Krakow.

  • Please put "GP Lille Decklist [YOUR LAST NAME]" as subject so we can identify your email easily.
  • Decklists need to be attached in a Notepad (.txt) version (available on all machines) with your name and DCI Number in it.
  • If you are using your phone, do not take a picture of a written decklist, it must be fully typed
    We have received in the past multiple poor photos that didn't allow us to read the content of the deck.

If you send multiple versions, the last one you submit will be the one we will consider.
Decklists submitted after 09:00 on Saturday will be considered late and you may be eligible to a Game Loss for Tardiness.

The first Outpost gamecenter was founded in 1997 in Antwerp as a brainchild of Werner Van Der Haeghe and Marc Antoni. Their vision was to provide the Antwerp community with a place that combined the best of various gaming worlds : a card game shop & tournament area, a fully equipped bar for food and drinks and a cybercafe dedicated to online gaming.


In 2006, Outpost Ghent opened its doors to the public, and in 2008 Outpost Brussels followed suit creating an axis between Brussels-Antwerp-Ghent (the three biggest cities of Belgium). In 2009 Outpost Brussels merged with 'La Table' - an experienced Brussels store with GP presence, thus establishing one big player in the Belgian Capital.

As the vision of the company has always been to be able to run large in-house events, all Outpost Gamecenters boast a gaming space of over 250 sq m.





The Outpost gamecenters organise more than 600 DCI events per year, ranging from simple and friendly commander events to more prestigious events like PTQs and GPTs. In 2011, Outpost Antwerp also hosted the Belgian National Championships. Loyal to a vision of community building, the outpost group have organized Bus Trips and accomodation for the players to numerous GP destinations like: Paris, Brighton, Bochum and Lyon



Grand Prix Presence


The Outpost gamecenters have been present on the GP circuit since 2009. Always up to date

with the most recent MTG products, the combined card collections of the three Outposts make

up for an impressive stock of cards that serves the needs of players in every GP, meeting over

90% of player's demand.

BoM Points: Win what you like! 13 Mar 2015 News by: Kevin


At GP Strasbourg, we experienced a brand new way to give out prizes. It's been really successful and we have decided to run it at all our events. The system is easy:


Instead of fixed prizes you may not be thrilled about, you will earn BoM points at ALL Side Events.
Yes, ALL Side Events: This includes Friday Trials and 8-player tournaments.


BoM Points can be converted into the boosters, singles or goodies that YOU like
Check our selection of top singles and exclusive goodies in our Prize Wall section

Points can be accumulated through the week-end
You don't need to choose a prize immediately. You can keep them throughout the whole week-end to be eligible to even better prizes.

Team with your friends
You can combine your BoM points to get better prizes.
How nice would it be that five of you share a ComicCon "Black" Planeswalkers Set?
Or that, instead of 30 individual boosters, you have a filmed brand new box of product?
Or maybe a whole case of product?


And if you have remaining BoM points at the end of the week-end, don't worry. Our prize wall will remain open until very late on Sunday evening!


Check out what's in it!
